Welcome everyone!
Michelle Thomas

It's a little hard to hear Debra. Maybe she can get a little closer to mic. THanks!
Elizabeth Hamrick
44:38
If the sound quality could be improved, the information would be more accessible.
Michael Horgan
44:53
Audio is going in and out
Peter Turnbull
45:28
Hi all, I’m on computer audio and am hearing quite well.
Kyle Cherrick
45:28
I'm hearing everything clearly on my side.
douglas dougherty
45:53
audio good for me
Michael Horgan
49:04
Audio is essentially gone now
Elizabeth Hamrick
49:10
Audio is lousy.
Ted Kidd
49:19
call in over phone
Atalia Howe
49:30
I hear just fine!
Dylan Heerema
49:36
better
Elizabeth Hamrick
50:58
Somewhat better
Atalia Howe
51:07
Yes, much better
Michelle Thomas
01:00:10
Are higher appraisals applicable to MF rental units? That is, can it be demonstrated to building owner that value of building increases with efficiency/electrification, etc?
Ted Kidd
01:00:45
So this assumes the solar is something the buyer would buy.
Ted Kidd
01:01:15
I like the comparables,
Michael Horgan
01:01:36
Will slides be made available? Going through them quickly (appreciated) but would love to review after.
Ted Kidd
01:02:49
How about comparable energy bill? As a buyer I don't care what these people used to pay - that's their problem not mine. I care what they pay relative to what the other houses I'm looking at, or even the market in general...
Peter Hellwig
01:02:59
Are there existing appraisal companies (appraisers) that are currently incorporating HP in their reports?
Ted Kidd
01:03:55
FE: If the average is $250 a month, the fact they're saving $400 is irrelevant to me. It means they bought a worse than average house - again, their problem.
Elizabeth Hamrick
01:04:25
I notice that in the post pictures, plantings have been reduced or removed. Is this change necessary? Here we have lots of trees.
Ted Kidd
01:04:35
The $250 that they're saving against the average seems like what a bank and a buyer would value...
Dan Kegel
01:06:44
Audio quality via mobile telephone call in my car was pretty bad, only understood every other word. Audio quality via web at work is a lot better, but still oddly muffled.
Ted Kidd
01:06:53
YES! Mandate energy consumption transparency
Amy Kiser
01:08:56
Are there state or local privacy laws about people’s utility bills that stand in the way of performance disclosures? (Eg. A seller won’t or can’t disclose past energy use on utility bills)
Ravi Mikkelsen
01:12:56
Is the competency requirement CA only or is this applicable across the US?
Ashleigh Spurgeon
01:14:41
We have time for a few more questions! Anything you couldn't hear and have questions about?
Alice Sung
01:15:10
Thanks for this great presentation, Debra, is there a place where we can find appraisers that understand this and how to find comps? And a database of high performance or solar etc. comps?
Ted Kidd
01:16:51
In a zero energy house, do you think the value is represented by what the house used to use or in the comparable, what the average similar house would use?
Alice Sung
01:18:15
Are the calculator tools inclusive of evaluating solar + battery storage and smart inverters now in the valuation/appraisal?--i.e. how is resiliency (ability to island in case of PSPS ) appraised?
Bertine Stelzer
01:19:54
In the absence of data available from the home owner, where would a Realtor or Appraiser be able to get information on the energy use / energy upgrades that a home went through? Who, other than the home owner, should record energy updates so that it can be insured documentation is actually happening?
Elizabeth Hamrick
01:20:41
How many years does the conversion cost recuperation take?
Ashleigh Spurgeon
01:25:23
Are we answering all your questions everyone?
Atalia Howe
01:25:42
High performance buildings are a risk mitigation approach (against climate change, volatile utility costs, etc.) - how is this captured in an appraisal?
Alice Sung
01:27:50
Thanks Debra!
Atalia Howe
01:27:52
Thanks!
Bertine Stelzer
01:27:56
Thank you!
Michael Horgan
01:28:02
Thank you!
